Abstract

Fracture toughness tests were made on 304 stainless steel at 4 K, varying the precracking temperature (300 K and 77 K) and magnetic field (0 T and 8 T). The obtained results are discussed, taking the TRIP* effect and the promotion of martensite formation in magnetic fields into consideration.

Fracture toughness values (JIC) of 43 — 62 kJ/m2 and tearing modulus values (Tmat) of 11 — 20 were obtained under various test conditions. The highest values of JIC and Tmat were obtained for cases in which a remarkable TRIP effect was expected. Low values of Tmat were obtained in cases of applying a magnetic field (8 T). The acceleration of martensite formation in the magnetic field might be considered to result in such low values of Tmat in these cases.
